The Great Pumpkin Rescue

ROCKLEDGE, FL. -- Brevard County, Central Area Parks and Recreation to host its Fourth Annual Great Pumpkin Rescue from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 7, at McLarty Aquatic Center located at 790 Barton Boulevard in Rockledge.

You are invited to dive in for some splash-tacular fun! Forget the pumpkin patch; we are rescuing pumpkins from a floating pumpkin patch!

Participants will be given a number which corresponds to a floating pumpkin in the pool. Participants will search for their number to rescue their pumpkin. Once a pumpkin has been rescued, attendees will be directed to our decorating station. A pumpkin decorating contest will be held at 7:00 p.m., and prizes awarded for each age group. There will be pumpkin rescuing, swimming, a pumpkin decorating contest, and treat bags.

Bring everyone for this great family event. Must register in advance, no on-site registration, as space is limited. Ages 4-15 years old are invited to participant in rescue and decorating contest. Cost is $6.00 for participants and $2.00 for all other swimmers.
